October 6 Kunskapsdagarna (The Knowledge days)Edit

This day was arranged by Nationalencyklopedin (think Swedish Encyclopedia Britannica) to give out the Knowledge prize. We were not nominated but at least we were invited to participate which in a way is a big recognition.

October 21-22 Internetdagarna (The Internet days)Edit

For the second year we attended the Internet days. Our attending fee was sponsored by IIS (again), the organization controlling the .se domain. They are also the main sponsor for Wikipedia Academy (see below). We got 5 new members and made some very good connections. Also it was a good event to get more of our members involved with the daily work.

October 24-26 FSCONSEdit

We were one of the organisers of Free Society Conference and Nordic Summit this year, responsible for the track Open Content. Other tracks were Open Source and Open Culture and our co-organisers were FSFE and Creative Commons. This was a very good place for us to make important connections within the movement. Frank Schulenberg and Lars Aronsson both gave great talks. Besides all that we got 5 new members this conference too.
